If you Loved Sailor Moon (and fairy tales) then you will love “Cinder” (book One of the Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer:
A Cinderella story set in New Beijing where our main girl is a no-nonsense cyborg. Cinder is working as a mechanic, supporting her step family who have guardianship/ownership of her due to the terrrrible cyborg discrimination laws.

Bonus: the big bad Lunar Queen totally reminded me of Queen Beryl from Sailor Moon and the audio book narrator was extra awesome.
